Karthus, the Deathsinger


Most of the chat log will be filled with taunts about your ultimate and about how skilled players pick other AP champions.  It is easy to write complaints when they send most of the game dead.  Karthus is a great champion that can fill many roles on the team.

Karthus suffers from a weak laneing phase.  His primary source of damage is a delayed explosion.  If He is unable to predict your movements, he will quickly waste his mana.  Champions that can dive him in the first few leave him battered or dead.  Shielding abilities help to ruin those well timed Karthis ults.

- He can farm with q all day long.


- He can assist enemy team fights from any location on the map.


- He like to die in the middle of team fights (actually strategy).


- His wall forces teams to run away or fight at a disadvantage.

- His ultimate can be canceled by CC.


- He has no escape tools.
